If you want to spend extra up-front, then go for the X1900XT. If you don't want/can't spend the extra now, go for the X1800XT. | Report abuse dean7 August 25, 2006 4:43:38 PM Check out some of the THG benchmarks to see if performance increase is worth the larger upfront price. I mean, that's what the guides are there for! | Report abuse monkey_knife_fight August 25, 2006 5:18:54 PM Both are good cards, but if you're willing to spend that kind of money, have you considered waiting for DX10 cards? If you don't care to wait, I would go with the x1900. | Report abuse Related ressources Need help picking a video card . - Forum Need help picking new video card . $100-$150 budget.
